Florianopolis to Rio Grande Day 3

Conditions remained the same overnight as we made good progress in rough seas. We passed the latitude of Porto Alegre at 04:00.

During the morning the wind eased to NE 4 and the seas moderated. We again poled out the yankee. By 11:00 the wind had dropped to NE ½ and we reluctantly put the motor on. Our weather window was not large and we faced the possibility of headwinds if we did not reach Rio Grande by Sunday.

Noon Run 104.84 miles. Rio Grande Entrance 180 miles.

Conditions remained the same as we continued under motor.
